In this session we will have a conversation about the option of midwifery as a profession, and how to become a midwife. A student who has recently completed the midwifery program, Tia Felix, will join the session to talk about her experiences in the program, lessons learned, tips for navigating the application process, and more. The UBC Midwifery Program Indigenous Student Coordinator, Evelyn George, will talk about what is being done to support Indigenous students in the UBC program. More broadly, we will discuss life as an Indigenous midwifery student and as an Indigenous midwife.
